An Air Canada Boeing 737-8 MAX flying from Arizona to Montreal with three crew members on board skilled an engine problem that pressured it to land in Tucson, the airline stated yesterday.
Shortly after taking off on 22 December the pilots "received an engine notification and, according to the standard operating procedure for such a situation, they decided to shut down an engine," Air Canada stated in a press release written in French.
"The aircraft was rerouted to Tucson, where it landed normally and remains," Air Canada stated, with out specifying the character of the malfunction, which occurred throughout a non-commercial "positioning flight."
According to the Belgian specialist website Aviation24.be, which first reported the emergency touchdown, the malfunction was because of a drop in hydraulic strain within the left engine.
The Canadian authorities introduced in mid-December that it had accepted the design adjustments Boeing made to 737 MAX planes after two crashes that killed 346 individuals led to the plane being grounded.
But the plane, bought by the Canadian airways Air Canada, Westjet and Sunwing, has not but been authorised to make industrial flights in Canadian airspace.
